It is a fun little oddity. It also features the then-current lineup for "Our Gang".

Subject: Nice
It's not a great film, but ever so nice to see a big bunch of classic movie stars in one little film, for a good cause.

I loved it.

Subject: Fun Watch
This short is fun to watch to see how many actors one recognizes. I didn't do very well, only spotted six of the twenty six, although most names are familiar.

I downloaded the MPEG2 file. Video and audio are OK, but there are some missing frames.

If you enjoy and know a bit about classic film of the 1930s, and if you appreciate many of those fine ladies and gentlemen that appeared on the screen at the time, you'll likely be entertained by this short. It's great fun to see actors and actresses from different studios working together; I think, perhaps, that was the point of The Stolen Jools... so many familiar faces and voices, and everyone somehow involved in this goofy mystery. A worthwhile twenty minutes of amusement!

Subject: Ugh.
It mostly makes the actors in this short look bad. Watch it once if you must, but I would not recommend it at all.

Subject: And the Next Actor Is...
If you are simply into dientifying as many of the actors as possible it fractionally may be worth viewing, but otherwise this piece of drivel isn't worth much more.
